After School Care


The after-school care will be provided on site and the service is available until 18.00hrs each school day. Our team of friendly, qualified staff aim to create a welcoming and educational outdoor and indoor environment for your child. The team will take your child to any extra curricular activities and collect them within the booked sessions.  


‘Pre booked’ places are reserved for the days required during the term and fees are invoiced and due to be paid before the start of the new term. The after school 'booking' form will need to be completed for a term time booking.This entitles the parent to a discounted price.


‘During term’ * - Parent’s are able to reserve places (subject to availability) during the term with fees due being charged to the school on a monthly basis to be included with your school fees. All same day bookings should be emailed to our administration team by 12pm or written in the ‘after school folder’ located in the conservatory of pre-prep. During term bookings are invoiced through the school.
